The Power of a Holistic Approach

Recognizing that no two clients are alike, we take the time to listen and understand your particular needs, goals, and vision. This understanding serves as the basis from which we develop an integrated plan that addresses every facet of your wealth. Our comprehensive approach is designed to create a plan that achieves your near- and long-term goals, whether you are seeking fundamental investment management, need to ensure the orderly succession of ownership for a family business, are providing care for an aging family member, or are looking to establish a philanthropic legacy that makes a difference in your community.

When crafting an integrated wealth management plan, we draw on our expertise in the following areas: 

  • Financial planning 
  • Retirement income planning 
  • Estate planning
  • Tax planning
  • Business succession
  • Intergenerational wealth transfer
  • Philanthropy

Investment Management: Institutional Thinking for Individual Investors  

We believe that individuals and families with significant wealth can benefit from the rigor and sophistication that typically characterize institutional portfolio management. Our approach to managing client assets is rooted in the following core strengths:  

Deep understanding. Before we invest any money, we determine a client’s goals, tolerance for risk, and time horizon.  Only then do we consider asset allocation and diversification. 

Disciplined Portfolio Construction. Based on the specifics of each client’s situation, we provide exposure to an appropriate mix of traditional and nontraditional assets. We also seek to provide diversification within each asset class—across sectors, industries, and countries. 

Rigorous oversight. When implementing a client’s investment strategy, we use a stringent process to screen possible investment solutions, selecting those that meet the objectives established for the client. Once the appropriate managers have been chosen, we provide ongoing oversight and make changes as necessary.
